I have found the death of a William ALDHAM in Lexden District in the 2nd quarter of 1840 which looks possible but I don’t know Essex. The 1851 Census says that Susanna was born in Frating and then aged 34, making her birth year about 1817. The births of two William LAND’s were registered at Rochford in 1840 and if one of these is my William it could explain why he later became LAND and then ALDHAMLAND when he discovered this. But there is also a William ALDHAM born at Rochford at the end of 1839.
Lexden is Colchester. Rochford is Southend - so these are at opposite
ends of the county.
